Digital Inclusion: Redefining e-learning as a process with pedagogical purpose
We have always been clear that technology adds value to education. We see that value in the way we organise learning for better efficiency and greater profundity of learning and in steering what we learn into unique episodes of activity and learning journeys. But might we now start to think about ‘doing’ e-learning for a purpose beyond its role in learning? DO we know enough about e-learning so we can describe e-learning as an outcome in its own right?
Perhaps e-learning isn’t just for education but for life….
To answer this question, we need a purpose, a way of working to get there and a method of organising education to make it happen and I would describe all that as follows:
The purpose of using technology is to help students make efficient use of their time in learning, find more meaning in their learning through the ability to personalise how, and what is learnt and, through fostering a strong and postitive on-line reputationcreate an independent commercial life, along with active ctizenship.
